INQ 250PH B Take a Dive: How Things Work

( T/Th 8:30AM-11:30AM )

Introduces the methodologies of the natural sciences through an inquiry-focused approach to a topic. Students will explore the types of questions that science asks and how it attempts to answer them by defining and classifying information, developing models, identifying patterns, and drawing conclusions based upon data. (Credit cannot be received for both HNRS-250 and INQ-250 from the same discipline.)(1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit

PHYS 330 A Theoretical Mechanics

Block 11 ( T/Th 1:10PM-2:40PM )

Developed examination of central force motion, coupled systems, rigid body motion, and the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations. (1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit
